The Benefits of Drop Shipping

Drop shipping is a method of stock management which is adopted by many modern businesses. Under this method, the retailer does not physically stock the product or products that they are selling, and order for it to be sent directly from the manufacturer. Below are some of the benefits of adopting this method.

Production costs

If you can find a production company who puts all of the investment into the creation of the product you do not have to worry about the sourcing of the materials, the machinery used and the maintenance of those machines.

Minimal Hassle

With none of the associated hassle of creating and storing the goods which you are selling you can concentrate on providing great customer service and ensuring that people keep on coming back to purchase your product/s.

Postage costs

The cost of postage is significant, especially of you are to send your items securely and minimise the loss of damage or loss. Therefore, if you can cut the cost from your business plan you can significantly increase your profits. Also, the practicalities of drop shipping can be time consuming.


If you have a shop from where you conduct your business, the ability to avoid keeping stock in store has many security benefits, including the elimination of lost profits through theft or fire damage etc.

Work from anywhere

If you do not have to be in control of stock or manage a shop front, you can literally work from anywhere in the world. This method of stock management is particularly well suited to e-commerce, and with such easy access to the Internet you are free to travel the world in the knowledge that you can still efficiently manage your business.
